Defined in header <type_traits>
template< class T >
struct remove_cvref;
(since C++20)

If the type T is a reference type, provides the member typedef type which is the type referred to by T with its topmost cv-qualifiers removed. Otherwise type is T with its topmost cv-qualifiers removed.

[edit] Member types

Name Definition
type the type referred by T or T itself if it is not a reference, with top-level cv-qualifiers removed

[edit] Helper types

template< class T >
using remove_cvref_t = typename remove_cvref<T>::type;
(since C++20)

[edit] Possible implementation

template< class T >
struct remove_cvref {
    typedef std::remove_cv_t<std::remove_reference_t<T>> type;
};

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <type_traits>
 
int main()
{
    std::cout << std::boolalpha
              << std::is_same_v<std::remove_cvref_t<int>, int> << '\n'
              << std::is_same_v<std::remove_cvref_t<int&>, int> << '\n'
              << std::is_same_v<std::remove_cvref_t<int&&>, int> << '\n'
              << std::is_same_v<std::remove_cvref_t<const int&>, int> << '\n'
              << std::is_same_v<std::remove_cvref_t<const int[2]>, int[2]> << '\n'
              << std::is_same_v<std::remove_cvref_t<const int(&)[2]>, int[2]> << '\n'
              << std::is_same_v<std::remove_cvref_t<int(int)>, int(int)> << '\n';
}

Output:

true

true
